Personal Quote:

It's too expensive, that's the thing nobody wants to talk about. It is too expensive to make movies. That's not true, it is too expensive to market movies. Making movies is not. You can have 10 bucks to 10 million bucks and if you got a crew, imagination and a lot of people willing to turn in some work next to nothing, you going to have a feature.

Trivia:

Had a long running feud with Jeff Anderson shortly after Clerks. (1994) was released and ended just before production began on Dogma (1999). This explains Anderson's absence in Mallrats (1995) and Chasing Amy (1997). See more »

Trademark:

Always uses a "The director would like to thank" special credit column near the end of his films' end credits. He usually thanks, among others, God, his wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith, Scott Mosier, Jason Mewes, and the film's crew. He also will not use the opening credit "A Kevin Smith Film" because he believes a film is the work of ALL the people involved, not just the director. See more »
